I'd think about that a lot more if I were you. My cousins both graduated with a MAJOR in BOTH Art and Psychology and they are working at a restaurant as a waiter/waitress. You will have zero career prospects when you graduate. It may be something you're interested in, but I'm just here to let you know in your case these interests won't make you any money, rather they will cost you money.

If you plan on being an art designer such as for games, etc. I would recommend a school focused on that and while you do so making a very good portfolio of all your art. I'm not trying to crush your dreams, I'm just trying to save as many people as I can from the pit that is Psychology and Arts.


Oh, I want to be an English teacher or therapist. Lol, I'm going to talk to an academic adviser tomorrow anyways so don't worry about it bruh. i got dis.

Tip number two: don't blindly trust academic advisors. Their top priority is to make the University money, what you want is second. Take their advise, but don't blindly trust it as the best route to take. I'm trying to help people not make the same mistakes my cousins made and I made as well when I trusted the advisor to help me, instead they stuck me in classes I "think are interesting". NO NO NO! You need to take a certain set of classes and cannot deviate from those classes unless you want to delay your graduation. The only true choice in college is a) your major, b) WHEN you take the classes. I'm not trying to force anything on you or change your mind, I'm just trying to save even 1 person from the pain I experienced when I was in college.

Currently I have 1 year left before I graduate with a bachelors of science.
I'm at that stage where I really need to start getting my stuff together.. So.. stress is a bit of an understatement right now ^_^;
Plus, all my friends are graduating this year, in about a few days actually. (I'll miss them)

I feel like I've gotten so old already, when someone tells me they're about to finish High School, I reminisce.. "I remember those days... yeah, that was when life was easier" and they're like "WHAT?!" hehe <3

I'll be graduating soon from my massage therapy school... I'm looking into working at a high-end spa like the Ritz-Carlton (the spa in the pictures is the one I want to apply to nearby... I was just there yesterday <3) or Hyatt nearby... they make really good money and i want to save up so I can pay off bills/loans, contribute to my rent, and of course: TRAVEL!!!




eventually I'll go back to college or learn animation/game design on my own time :3

I was supposed to graduate with an IT major next month, but unfortunately my college was closed down (remember the news about Corinthian?) so now I have to transfer to Leeward Community College for another two semesters. Don't get me wrong, I don't approve of what Heald's parent company did, but I was pretty damn close to graduating.

I'm graduating high school. Not sure what I'm doing after, but I'm not in a rush.

I'm also graduating with a 24 credit diploma instead of a standard 27 credit because, long story short, I'm lame and I dislike coming to school. The only difference is I don't get to attend the ceremony and I'm not even mad about that. I went to my friend's graduation ceremony, and I fell asleep.

For myself, I'm graduating in Finance, 0 plans. Want to take a break and hopefully discover something before I decide if I want to pursue "corporate"


Good luck with your graduation! While I'm not graduating from college, I am graduating from high school this year and am heading off to get a degree in film theory. My goal is to write in animation; I've done all the research of what degrees and steps I need to take to get there without needing to be good a drawing. Hopefully, one day, I might be able to do something revolutionary and reform the current industry to create so I can freely create animated series with a variety of plot-lines, even outside of just comedic cartoon antics.

That's my plan; sounds really far-fetched, but you've gotta dream big or go home and be bored.

Anyways, good luck and I wish you success!
